Four bedrooms, two upstairs bathrooms, downstairs cloakroom, large kitchen/diner. The detached house has a private pool and walled garden and lies in a small hamlet in Charente, surrounded by fields and woods. Floorplans are included in the photo gallery.

Charming, detached 19th century Charentais long house which lies roughly midway between the medieval cities of Poitiers and Angoulême, in the middle of a stone-built hamlet deep in the French countryside.

The area around our house is pleasantly undulating, with small lanes lined with chestnut trees winding between fields of maize and sunflowers or through small woods. There is virtually no traffic on the roads and the area is ideal for cycling and walking. The villages and hamlets have limestone buildings with painted shutters and pantile roofs.


The main entrance to the house leads into the kitchen / dining room. This is a large room with fitted kitchen complete with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, induction hob and electric fan oven. The farmhouse table has plenty of space around it for everyone to gather.

From the kitchen, you walk into the living room with wood burning fire, three sofas, television with Freesat digibox to receive UK television, plus Blu-ray DVD player and stereo. There is free high-speed fibre broadband with Wi-Fi

There is a further room containing a cloakroom and a laundry room containing washing machine, tumble dryer and sink.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms: the master room with king-size bed and en-suite bathroom (including bath with shower over), one double room, one twin room and one single room; as well as a large family shower room.


The south facing garden is mainly laid to lawn, but there is plenty of room to put the table and chairs in the shade of the mature trees if the sun gets too hot.
The 9m x 4m private swimming pool has Roman steps leading into a 90cm depth shallow end (the deep end is 2.1m).

If you want to go a little further afield and explore the region, our house is roughly an hour and a half from the sea at La Rochelle and about the same distance from the foothills of the Massif Centrale at Limoges. Angoulême to the south and Poitiers, plus the Futuroscope theme park, to the north are within easy reach. Saintes and Cognac, with its distilleries offering guided tours, lie to the south-west.

A charming house in a rural setting, the perfect place to stay while enjoying your holiday in France

By Richard Cross on 12-Aug-2023

We had a wonderful time staying in Grosbout. Everything was perfect. A charming house with everything we needed, perfect weather, beautiful countryside, and plenty to go and see in the surrounding area. Our daughters made full use of the pool while we were there and loved it. Some of the places we visited and really enjoyed were Vallee des Singes (great for the children), Angoulême, the market in Lezay, Verteuil-sur-Charente and the Château in Javarzay. Lots of memories to cherish for years to come.
